transportation and petroleum products. >> is it crystal clear that the impact of a u.s. strike on syria will mean higher gas prices? >> so far, we are seeing that to be the case. syria is not a big oil producer. it's not a big shipment zone either. but at the same time, anything that takes place in the middle east that could cause continued turmoil or violence in other countries, you know, that's something that concerns the petroleum markets and as a result you see the future prices rise. on wednesday, we saw the price of west texas intermediate crude oil go up $6 per barrel in comparison to the week previous and gasoline futures went up $15. and so those are some pretty huge price jumps. we have seen the petroleum markets drop a little bit since then. there's a lot of concern and prices at the pump have been going up. on the other hand, things aren't as bad as they were a year ago. in fact, if people can remember labor day back in 2012, the national average is $3.83 per gallon. so, you know, it's a lot cheaper than a year ago but you can expect to see higher prices in the days ahead. >> michael,
